Controlling the throttle signals going into your stock Engine Control Unit (ECU) with this aftermarket device means your JK will respond and accelerate faster or slower and more economically based on your driving conditions. Your ECU translates the force of your foot on your accelerator pedal into electronic signals, which then tells the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) how much power to push to the wheels. Featuring mode memory and the ability to lock in your throttle, this module will work with any applied performance upgrades. If you’re looking for more power to get you up a hill tap the up button on your new throttle controller and choose your performance enhancement. If you’re stuck in heavy, city traffic simply click the down button and pick the best way to slow things down and save your gas. Additionally, this Throttle Controller features an easy plug and play installation process.

Today on CJ Off-Road, we're gonna increase the performance of our JK Wrangler with some help from Injen.
Your Jeep Wrangler comes equipped with a fly-by wire accelerator, which limits the acceleration to the factory specifications. Today we want to show you how to increase that throttle response by installing this Injen X-Pedal Pro.
This Injen X-Pedal Pro is going to fit all 2007 to '18 JK Wranglers equipped with a 3.8 or 3.6 liter engine. It features everything that you need to get it mounted up into your JK Wrangler, including a nice control box, all the wiring, and a dash monitor with the 3M tape. Now this plugs into your OBD2 port, as
well as behind your accelerator pedal, so we're gonna get this installed on my 2012 JK equipped with a Supercharger, and see how the difference feels. We pulled the door off of our Jeep Wrangler to make it a bit easier for you guys to see, and it's easier once you're crawling up into there and working with some of the wiring underneath. Make sure that you disconnect the battery first. Go underneath the hood and make sure that's disconnected, and we're gonna get started with the install.
To get started, we're gonna first remove this access panel on the driver's side of our dash. We're gonna use a trim removal tool. This is just a little plastic pry bar. That way we don't nick it up. This will give us access easier to that OBD2 port, and let us tuck away some wires. Just little clips under there. Once you get it started, it will just pop right out. It's nice and simple.
Now if you're inside your Jeep and you look upwards on the accelerator pedal, you can see there's a little clip on the top left corner of this screen. You're going to depress it and pull that off. Plug it into the X-Pedal connection. Then put their connection back into its place. It's pretty simple to do. However, it's extremely hard to see, so just trust me on this one. It will pop right off. Plug the other one in. Then we'll continue the wiring.
There are a lot of different choices as to where you mount up your LCD display. Now in my Jeep, I'm gonna put it right here. I feel like it's a nice spot for it. It's not gonna get bumped or jostled around. The kit actually includes 3M tape, so I've tucked the wire in between the steering column, and actually just ran it out through here. Super easy, you can see right through there. Now let's get this mounted up into place.
Attach the 3M adhesive to the back. Make sure you press firmly on there so it seats. We'll pull the red off the back. Make sure you hold this in place for a little bit. That way it sticks onto your dash properly. If your dash is dirty, make sure you clean it off first [inaudible 00:02:36]. I put some 3M tape on the back of this control box here. What I'm gonna do ... place it right here. Press firmly, that way it sticks, and we can connect everything right up at the top. The display wire is going to plug right into here. Next is going to be the power wire from the OBD2 port. Last but not least, the input from the pedal will go right at the end. These two wires I have cut off. Now if you want to, you can tap this into brake light, and this into your reverse switch sensor. That's going to turn off the pedal control when you're in reverse. I have a manual Jeep, so I don't really mind about that. If you're not gonna use them, just tape them up like this. That way they don't short out, or ground out, or anything like that.
The battery is now reconnected. What you're going to do is put the key in the ignition, and turn it to the ACC on. But make sure that your Jeep doesn't start. I'm gonna go through and show you how to get this setup, that way your computer can learn the accelerator positions, and get you setup perfectly so you have some more throttle response.
Now the first thing you're going to do is hold the mode button down until the number counts down from zero. This is going to be the 0% accelerator input, so it's going to learn when your foot is not on the pedal. So we're not going to step on the pedal. It's going to learn the 0% throttle position. Give that a couple of seconds, about 10 seconds.
Press the up or down arrow. Now it says H, and all of these are blinking here, so this is going to be the full throttle position. I'm gonna push the pedal all the way to the floor, 100% throttle, and hold it there. Now with the throttle fully depressed, I'm going to press the down arrow. It says zero. The full throttle position lights, they are all the way up. Now I'll release it, and it went all the way down. Now see, watch this. Can you see it?
Now I'm gonna slowly press on the pedal, and you'll see what happens. See the light is going up right there. Now as I release them, they're going down. That has successfully learned our throttle input. Now that we're in our Jeep, honestly I was a little bit hesitant to see what it would do. It's not really a performance gain as far as horsepower and torque go, it's just to change that throttle input. So right now I've got it in sport mode and I'm at level five. Now Injen recommends that you don't go above level six, so kind of that seven, eight, and nine level, unless you're off-road or on a track because it's pretty serious. I put it up to number nine, and you can honestly feel it kind of just ramp up. But I'm gonna keep it at five.
You can definitely feel the difference there. Now my Jeep is supercharged, so one of the things that was lacking was that throttle response. I always thought that it was a little bit low from the factory. This Injen X-Pedal Pro seems to be changing it up pretty good. Probably one of the nicest features about the Injen kit here is that you're able to change it on the fly.
Now, you should do it at a stoplight, that way you're used to the change that it's going to make to your throttle. But you can change it from sport mode one through nine. You can go back to normal mode, which is no change than it would be from factory. Then you can even go to eco mode. Now eco mode is going to slow down your throttle response, making your Jeep a little bit more economically friendly, getting better gas mileage, which is something we're not used to as Jeep owners. So if you want to just drive down the highway or you're just cruising for a long trip, put it in that eco mode. It's not going to waste as much gas when you gun it on the throttle. But around town, you want to have some fun, put it in the sport mode. It's definitely worth it.
It's there is think where you feel it, the mid-range. Also, one of the cool things about this kit is that you don't need any tools to do it. I did use a trim removal tool to get that panel off, but you can do that with your hands if you're careful enough, or a little screwdriver or something like that. So you don't need anything crazy specific or a mechanic's tool to do this or get it done. Just pop that off, make a few connections.
I used a couple zip ties in the end to clean up the wiring a little bit, but you don't even need to do that. If you just pop that panel back on, stick that onto your dash, and now you've got your pedal completely controlled by the Injen unit. It seems to be working pretty good. Now this X-Pedal from Injen is available right here at CJPonyParts.com as well as many other performance parts for your JK Wrangler. It's gonna turn it into a street machine, and get you ready for the trail.
